Zucchini plants are really neat to watch as they grow and produce. Both male and female flowers grow on the same plant, and the male flowers fertilize the female flower, usually through insect pollination. It can also be done by hand with a Q-tip. You can see that the flower eventually falls off of the zucchini before harvesting.

This selection of photos shows the rapid growth in just few days from May 2. It also shows a little crowding with the tomato and cucumber plants, so next year I'll leave more room.

This montage of photos gives a full view of my two larger garden plots. I then zoomed in on the husky cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, and tomatillo.  In hindsight, I probably over-planted a bit, as all of the plants are merging together. I get overzealous at the start of each growing season and now barely have walking room between the row of tomatoes and cucumbers. The harvest is still in abundance, so I'll simply make minor adjustments next time.

The photos here show strong progress with the tomatoes, mint, cucumbers, and zucchini. The last photo, which is a marigold plant, is great for natural pest control. I plant these throughout the cinder block sections.

Today's blog post illustrates the start of my spring gardens. I decided to plant the following: various tomatoes, cucumbers, tomatillo, zucchini, and various peppers.  I planted each within 16-24 inches of spacing.
